Pottery Retreat

Pottery Retreat

Retreat Bookings now open for 2021

The pottery holidays are best suited to serious aspirants looking for personalized teaching & peaceful practice time.

Long stay pottery retreats at Aura are structured getaways for individuals who are at the beginner level or intermediate potters. A beginners pottery course is for a minimum duration of one week. A long stay would range typically from 2 weeks (min) to 12 weeks (max). Our local guests can choose to complete their retreat over weekend classes. 

A pottery retreat means you spend time with like-minded people, explore your own creativity, get inspired by others, and all along enjoy and learn the art of pottery from India. Call it a pottery learning holiday, if you will.

Things you will learn:

  1. Wedging and clay preparation
  2. Wheel throwing, centering, pulling and making basic pottery shapes
  3. Trimming and finishing on the wheel
  4. Hand building techniques like Pinching, Slab making and Coiling.
  5. Bisque firing
  6. Glaze application
  7. Glaze firing

Note: Steps 5, 6, and 7 are valid only in a Four to Twelve week program.
